Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Will Selanne be back in the NHL?

Teemu Selanne has yet to decide whether he’ll play another NHL season with the Anaheim Ducks at the age of 43.

But Ducks defenceman Luca Sbisa is "99% sure" the Finnish Flash will be back with the team.

"I've asked him about five times," Sbisa told the Orange County Register. "You want to play? You got to play. And he's like, 'I don't know.' We'll see. But I'm 99% sure he's going to play. I think he's got one more year for sure. But it's up to him."

NHL.com has an updated list of free agents.

“We use a lot of ex-pros and college layers, some local guys that have played high-level hockey,” Rammer explains. “We leverage the feedback from the players because they’re the ones who’ve played the game at that level and know the game in a way different from the rest of us.”
